The data in the present study is consistent with the concept of duplicated adjacent stretches of DNA coding for 16 and 28 S ribosomal RNA. The four-fold increase in hybrid formation between 16 S RNA and satellite DNA strongly suggests that satellite DNA codes for this RNA. The capacity for both DNA's to form hybrids with respect to 28 S RNA could mean that the DNA stretches coding for 28 S RNA are adjacent to those coding for 16 S RNA but are of slightly higher buoyant density. 10 S RNA appears to be coded for by the major band DNA only.
